    Nuggets turn down a trade for Blake Griffin.

    They would just have to give up their whole team....


    According to Chris "Sources" Broussard himself, the Clippers offered Griffin and Lance for Jokic, Barton, Gallo, and Faried, but the Nuggets turned them down.

    Earlier, there were reports that the Clippers and Nuggets were engaged in trade talks, to which Dan Woike and Doc Rivers himself more or less denied. However, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard, Doc was actually the one making an offer and it was for a massive depth increase with the Denver Nuggets. Let me preface this all by saying: we all saw Doc say on camera that Blake is ours, so at the end of the day, I'm going to believe that. However, when there is smoke, there is usually some fire.

    Regarding the actual trade, it's an interesting one, but one I'm ultimately not a huge fan of. I think it's easy to understand why the Nuggets say no to this: Blake Griffin and Lance don't push you over the edge, and losing THAT much depth for a potential 2 years Griffin rental is hard to swallow, even if it is 2 years with a legitimate superstar. Regarding the Clippers' side, I understand the idea of it, but I'm not a fan at all. Faried would be nearly unplayable next to Jordan with their lack of spacing (not to mention Faried is overpaid and has very poor defense), and while Gallo is a Top 10 SF, he's injury prone. Jokic and Barton are really nice pieces, but ultimately, I don't think those are the right pieces for Blake Griffin. Rumor or not, it didn't happen, and I can gladly say it's a good thing that it didn't happen. If this did happen, I would most likely be found driving around aimlessly in Los Angeles looking for Doc Rivers' phone number to tell him not to do it.

    They have Jordan in the middle.

    They should trade him for Kevin Love.

    Griffin isn't worth much. Compared to others at his position he has no shooting skills and now that the dunk show has faded the guy doesn't offer much. Clippers will never move him for what they are asking.

    Send him to Philly for Okafor and Covington. They get inside scoring and three point shooter, Philly gets s big name and a tough inside defense with Blake and Noel.

    Why the heck do the Nuggets need Griffin when Kenneth Faried does basically the same thing.

    The Celtics would take him. They'll give you that skinny long-haired kid plus a 1st rd pick or two. They'd love him I'm Boston.

    There's no way those two could be on the court the same time. That would be ugly.
